Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Morning pick up from Entebbe Airport. Start the tour with a 4 - 5 hour drive to Murchison falls National Park. Move on to the top of the magnificent falls where you will enjoy your picnic lunch as you marvel at the mighty Nile forced into a seven meter crevice to thunder 45 meters below in a series of cascades. The Nile can be viewed at different points up to the Baker's Summit. Dinner and overnight at Paraa Safari Lodge.

Day 2: After an early morning breakfast, embark on a half day game drive on the northern bank of the river Nile. Escorted by game ranger, you may opt for a game walk while trailing animals and studying animal spoors. Game in this area includes Giraffe, Elephant, Harte beest, Lion, Uganda Kob, Oribi and a variety of savannah and woodland birds. Return to the Lodge and enjoy the peace and quiet at the swimming pool. After lunch, take a boat cruise along the river Nile for game viewing at a close range. This is a paradise of the Hippo and Crocodiles. Retire for Dinner and overnight at Paraa Safari Lodge.

Day 3: After an early breakfast, transfer to Queen Elizabeth National Park via Bugungu gate. Here you will view the shores of Lake Albert and drive through and up the escarpment which is part of the western leg of the East African rift valley. Arrive in Queen Elizabeth National Park in time for Dinner and overnight at Mweya Safari Lodge.

Day 4: After an early morning cup of tea at 6:30am, depart for a game drive on the northern parts of the park along the Kasenyi track. This is the best time for opportunities to view the cats in action. Later, return for breakfast; take another cruise on the Kazinga to see herds of Buffalo, Hippo and other animals at the edge of the channel as they cool off. Depending on the season European migrant birds like the terns and gulls congregate here in large flocks. Afternoon transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, the gorilla sanctuary. And spend the night in Kitandara Luxury tented camp.

Day 5: After breakfast and briefing by park rangers and with picnic lunch, embark on a 30 minutes - 8 hours trek to find the Mountain gorillas. The tracking starts at the area where the gorillas spent the previous day. On sighting gorillas, you will be allowed a full hour with them. You then retire for dinner and overnight at Kitandara Luxury tented camp. But for the energetic, there is a possibility of a village guided walk to experience some of the community tourism projects.
